Overland comes with the comforts of home, even a fridge and stove
Shows off Ford Performance accessories catalogue
This week at the biggest gathering in North America of classic Ford Broncos, Ford revealed its latest Bronco concept. The Bronco Overland that turns the SUV into a go-anywhere camping rig, complete with rooftop tent and some serious off-road goodies.
The Bronco Overland concept starts with a four-door Ford Bronco Badlands painted in the Area 51 blue. It also has the Bilstein position-sensitive dampers of the High-Performance Off-Road Stability Suspension system and the 2.3L Ecoboost four.
Then it’s fitted with 17-inch Fifteen52 heavy-duty wheels wrapped in 35-inch BFGoodrich KM3 mud-terrain tires. Up front is a Ford Performance Warn winch mounted to a Ford modular steel bumper. The tubular unit is designed to take a beating while offering up a winch mounting point to help out when you’re really stuck.
Up top is a two-person Yakima tent and a factory roof rack, as well as a 1×40 Rigid LED light bar. Six more Rigid Pod lights are fitted around the roof rack to let the Bronco Overland light up a full circle around itself in the dark.
The cargo area is set up to be your basecamp, including an ARB fridge, cooking kit, and a stove that’s mounted to a cargo management system. The fridge is mounted on a slide-out tray, and when it’s time to eat, a table and chairs are mounted to the tailgate for easy access. For even more cargo management, the rear quarter glass has been fitted with rigid panels and MOLLE attachment grids.
While Ford’s not likely to offer this exact model on sale, they’re all; accessories that you can go out and buy. At least, that is, once the Ford Bronco starts to roll out to dealers.
